These are from a trip to Italy.  I am going to leave out the commentary, mainly because I do not have anything to really add.  Enjoy the view …

I like all of these, especially the black and white of the Italian coast line.  However, I want someone to explain to me how the guy above does this … power of prayer???  I have a lot more I will be posting from Italy in the future, so please check back.  Thanks for looking … Frank

Some More From Ireland …

The Duke_5x5_RTP_1 July 15 _Blog

It is hard to believe that it was ten years ago this time of July that Pam and I were over in Ireland.  I am still going through my file and coming up with new images to work up and post.  No, it is not because I take such great photos … it is because that I take so many of them!!!  I think that I made over 1600 digital images and I think that I shot close to twenty-five rolls of 120 b&w film with my Hasselblad.  The one regret that I have is that I wish I would have taken more photos with people, sort of like character studies that I made of the Irish musician playing the flute outside of the train station.  Here are a few more and these are all that I have not posted before …

Irish Times Sign_5x5_RTP_1 July 15 _ Blog

On the last image of the Irish Times sign, I removed a video camera and a light that I thought took away from the image.  It seems that every where you go in the world today there are going to be video cameras and you see that in a lot of the movies.  If you throw a candy wrapper down in a major city today it is being video-taped, so you better watch out and find a trash can and not liter.  That is about it for me … I have not forgotten my blogs, but have been occupied with other things lately..  One thing that has gotten my attention has been Instgram.  Here is a link to my page and there are a lot of photos that I have posted here, but not all.  I have been adding images from my father’s blog with photos he made from the 1930’s to the ’60’s, so that I do not have to bother with two Instagram accounts.  That is it for now … thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
